Random Dozen 10/20/10

1. Do you prefer to read the book or see the movie?

I prefer to start with the book and then see the movie.  That way, I can criticize the way Hollywood decided to portray it.  LOL  Seriously, though, we try to make that a rule in our house – not the criticizing part – the book first part.

2. What is your favorite holiday and why?

Probably Christmas.  I like preparing for it and spending time with family and friends.  Oh, and I like buying gifts (as long as I do it before the crazy after-Thanksgiving rush!)

3. Which do you like better - the mountains or the beach?

Well, I’d always say the beach.  But, the thing is, I HATE sand. So, when I say “the beach” I’m really meaning the whole atmosphere at the beach – the boardwalk, etc.  The  truth of the matter is, I would probably prefer the mountains, it’s just that we never go there!

4. If money were no consideration, what vehicle would you drive?

A Toyota Camry

5. What is your favorite cold-weather beverage?

Spiced Cider
6. How do you communicate most often with your friends: phone, email, text, face-to-face, or Facebook?

Depends on the friend.  With my friend Sue I was on the phone ALL THE TIME.  She was a major phone person.  With most of my friends now, it’s usually via IM or e-mail.  If you’re reading this and you’re someone who communicates with me, please note that I much prefer e-mail to FB private messages.  :)

7. How do you receive your mail? Mailbox on the porch, at the end of the driveway, down the street, or post office box?

Post office, which just happens to be right down the street – so I guess the last 2 on this list both qualify!

8. Of the four basic personality types - sanguine, phlegmatic, melancholic, and choleric - which is your strongest? Which is your least evident?

I’d say I’m probably strongest in Melancholic, with Phlegmatic running a close 2nd.  Least = Sanguine. 
9. What do you miss the most about being 20?

Nothing that I can think of.  20 wasn’t my best year.  LOL

10. How long from the time you get up, does it take you to get ready to walk out the door in the morning?

Well, considering as how, most mornings, I don’t need to actually walk out the door, it takes hours!  For example, it’s 9:30am, and though my hair is washed and I drank my daily dose of caffeine, I’m still not dressed.  I could be, though, if I had to be.

11. Who handles the car maintenance and pays the bills in your family?

My husband.  He likes working with numbers and finances depress me – so it works!

12. For those in the US, how many states have you visited? For those outside the US, how many provinces/other countries have you visited?

Hmmm . . . I’m not 100% sure.  I remember filling out one of those maps one time, but I don’t even remember the results.  I just did a search and found one.  So, here goes (notice a trend?  it’s all east coast states!) - - -

#1 you and I are the same, and yes Hollywood gets it very wrong sometimes.
I also like that you put a note in there to your friends you prefer email to fb messages. Hints are always a good thing. Nice to meet you for Random Dozen.
